Okta Device Trust: Integration Setup

By Aaron Alquillera

Learn how to set up and configure the Okta Device Trust integration in Kandji

Okta Device Trust allows Okta admins to ensure that Kandji manages their Apple devices before end users can access Okta-protected apps from their devices. This, in part, enables Okta FastPass for a password-less authentication experience for end-users, enabling them to sign in to Okta and their Okta resources without needing a password. For iOS, iPadOS, and macOS devices specifically, FastPass allows users to leverage Face ID and Touch ID to access resources. Okta FastPass is a feature of Okta Identity Engine.

Prerequisites

During the integration setup process, Kandji will check for the presence of the following items. These items must be configured in the Okta tenant before setting up the ODT integration with Kandji. If Kandji finds one or more of these items missing, a warning modal will be displayed.

Integration setup

  1. Login to your Kandji tenant.
  2. Navigate to Integrations
  3. Click Discover Integrations.
  4. In the Security section, find Okta Device Trust and click Add and configure.
  5. In the Welcome to Okta Device Trust modal, click Get started.
  6. In the Specify your Okta Domain modal, enter your Okta tenant URL and click Next.



  7. In the Sign in with Okta modal, click Sign in with Okta. This will open a new browser window and navigate you to your Okta tenant, where you will create an API Service Integration. Once that is done, you will come back to Kandji to continue the ODT integration setup.

    The Okta user used to configure ODT should have the super admin role in Okta.

  8. Once signed into Okta, you should be on the Authorize Kandji Device Trust integration page. On this page, click Install & Authorize.


    The Kandji API Service integration uses the following scopes:

    okta.devices.manage
    okta.devices.read
    okta.authenticators.read

  9. On the Copy your client secret modal, copy the client secret to a safe place for use later in Kandji.

    Please copy the Client Secret, as it will be the only time you can view it.

  10. Click Done.

  11. On the Kandji Device Trust overview page, copy the Client ID to a safe place for use later in Kandji.

  12. Head back to Kandji to continue the ODT integration setup.

  13. In the Complete the following tasks in Okta modal, click Next.

  14. In the Provide OAuth client credentials modal, enter the Client ID and Client Secret copied from earlier.

  15. Click Connect to Okta. Kandji will check in the background to ensure that the Okta tenant is on Okta Identity Engine and Okta FastPass is enabled.
